Discover Captain Cook's New Zealand by Silver Fern Holidays

Cook Heritage Trail

Discover Captain Cook's New Zealand , more than 250 years after he and the crew of HMS Endeavour became the first Europeans to set foot in the land of the long white cloud.
Our unique itinerary charts his journey around New Zealand, from Auckland to the Bay of Islands, to the Coromandel, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne and Hawke's Bay.
Key destinations including Rotorua and Wellington are not overlooked, before travelling to South Island.
Ship Cove in what is now Abel Tasman National Park was Cook's favourite anchorage, and the rest of the itinerary on South Island ensures no jaw-dropping scenery is missed, from the Southern Alps to Milford Sound.
